Hi my boyfriend bought a bench and chairs of untreated wood and does not want to
stain or paint it thinking it will just 'age' nicely. Sadly he won't listen to
the fact that it will warp, mold and possibly become infected with insects if
untreated. This message can't come from me though he WILL however listen to
experts so could anyone kindly rely to what happens if you leave fully u treated
wood outside (as outdoor furniture) thank you!

First, he might be right, some woods do age nicely and last for years.
Second, you might be right and when the rot comes to pass, he will discover
that you have wisdom beyond your years and he will respect your opinions
However, there is a deeper issue here. If he doesn't listen to you but will
listen to strangers on the web, you guys either need to work on your
relationship or you need to walk away and find someone who will love and
respect you for the wise, caring and beautiful person that you are.
...unless, of course, he is right about the wood.
